Erdogan tells Stoltenberg Turkey’s security concerns are just

President Tayyip Erdogan told NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg over the phone that Turkey’s security worries about Sweden and Finland’s membership bids were justified and reasonable, according to Erdogan’s office.

“Both countries should make it clear that they have stopped supporting terrorism, that they have lifted sanctions against Turkey, and that they are ready to show alliance solidarity,” Erdogan was cited as telling Stoltenberg in the call.
